There hasn't been anything here for a few weeks as I've been on holiday, including 13 days in Far North Queensland (Cairns, Port Douglas and Palm Cove). It was pleasant and relaxing, but not much beach time. It was dry and warm most days, but also cloudy and windy. The sun shone on only a few days.
We lazed at the resort in Palm Cove—wonderful. We drove around the region and saw the sights: Mossman Gorge, The Barron Falls, Kuandra, a piece of the Reef, the canefields, the Tablelands. The landscapes, the views, the forest and the sea filled the eye at every turn.
But I've decided that I don't like long haul domestic flights in the least.
